Gregory’s Wish

By | Developer Research, Technology


Gregory wished to be a tractor driver

Gregory, a 5 year old boy from Orange County, has been suffering from a brain tumor since 2014. Despite the heartache and disruption this has caused in his life, he still finds joy and happiness that all children deserve to experience in childhood. One thing that brings him a great deal of joy is farms and tractors. Gregory loves to learn about farms and watch shows about them on T.V. One of his dreams has always been to ride a tractor.

Recently, the Make-A-Wish team in the United States was able to make this dream come true for Gregory. Gregory and his family were able to spend a fun-filled day at The Original Manaserro Farms. He was treated to many special things, but the most exciting thing that he got to experience was being able to drive a tractor. Everyone involved in this wish being granted could feel the joy and happiness that Gregory felt.

Too many children like Gregory have to experience pain on a daily basis. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is able to grant wishes, like Gregory’s, and take that pain away for a little while and replace it with joy. Pivotal Perspectives believes in the mission of Make-A-Wish and will make donation to this incredible charity each time a survey is completed.

Thank you for participating in our surveys and helping to make wishes, like Gregory’s, come true!

Make a Wish

The Make-A-Wish® Foundation began in 1980 when an Arizona Police Department made the wish of  little boy with leukemia come true. That little boy’s name was Chris, and with his simple wish of wanting to be a police officer for a day, the idea for a wish-granting organization was born. Nearly 37 years later, thousands of wishes all around the world have been granted for children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Inspired by the stories of strength of these children, and the joy that these wishes bring, the community at Pivotal Perspectives® is committed to supporting this foundation with every survey that a participant completes. When you share your perspectives about software development and cloud computing issues, you are also helping to make the wish of a child come true.

PJ, a young man from Canada, was granted a life-changing wish through Make-A-Wish®  Toronto & Central Ontario. PJ has battled a type of cancer called Hodgkin Lymphoma. This disease has kept him from doing the normal everyday things that a typical teenager would do, but it has not kept him from his passion for politics. PJ’s dream is to one day become the prime minister of Canada. The Make-A-Wish foundation made this dream come true sooner than PJ could have imagined.

Many people came together to plan a very special week for PJ. His trip began by being flown to Ottawa, where he was made honorary Prime Minister during the week of his wish. Throughout his stay in Ottawa, PJ had the pleasure of meeting the Prime Minister of Canada himself, Justin Trudeau and many other influential politicians. He had his own security detail and got to stay in the presidential suite at the famous hotel, Chateau Laurier.

Thanks to the Make-A-Wish®  Foundation, this was a magical week for PJ and his family. PJ described the experience as his version of Disneyland.

At Pivotal Perspectives® , we are proud to support the Make-A-Wish®  International Foundation. Each time a survey is completed, a donation is made to support wishes like PJ’s and so many others around the world.

Meet five-year-old Balun. He lives in Hong Kong and is suffering from end-stage renal failure. One of Balun’s favorite things to do, is have his parents tell him stories of superheros. The Make-A-Wish team in Hong Kong was able to plan a day for Balun that included meeting his most esteemed superhero and going on a special mission. Balun got to dress up in a superhero costume, catch all of the “bad guys”, recapture the magic, and save the earth! He got to be a real superhero!

For one day, Balun was given the chance to escape the world of sickness, and become the superhero that he dreamed of being. Many people came together to play the parts of different characters and act out battle scenes involved with the mission. Balun experienced so much happiness and pride that day, as did his family.

The Make-A-Wish® International Foundation helps to make the wishes of children with incurable illnesses come true, all over the world. With each survey that is completed, Pivot Point Research is proud to make a donation to this incredible program.

The Make-A-Wish® Foundation began in the United States in 1980. Today, the Make-A-Wish® International Foundation reaches countries and children all over the world. This amazing program helps make the wishes come true of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Pivot Point Research is proud to support this foundation, and children all over the world.

This week’s Make-A-Wish story comes from a young girl in Brazil. Nine-year-old Camila, diagnosed with malignant cerebral neoplasm, dreamed of being a real princess. She didn’t want to be just any princess though, she wanted to be a warrior princess. The Make-A-Wish team in Brazil made this dream a reality for Camila. A very special day was set up for the young girl, a day where she would feel like hero, Princess Valiente.

Camila’s dream day began with an archery class. She learned how to use a bow and arrow and hit targets. Next, Camila went to a stable where she learned to ride a horse, just a like a real warrior princess! After a special lunch filled with more surprises, Camila got to go on a carriage ride. The day was a dream come true, a day where Camila was transported to another world, far away from the one of pain and suffering that she was so used to.

There are many children just like Camila, wishing to experience their dream become a reality, if only for just one day. By taking part in one of our surveys. a donation will be made to the Make-A-Wish® International Foundation.
